Long-serving Stoke defender Andy Wilkinson has agreed a one-year contract extension, the club have announced.

The deal, which also includes the option of a further 12 months, will take the 29-year-old into a 14th season with the Potters.

Wilkinson, born in nearby Stone, fell down the pecking order during the 2013-14 campaign, making just six appearances, but remained keen to stay at the Britannia Stadium.

Wilkinson told the club's website: "I am very happy to sign again for Stoke. This is a club that I love and I want to stay at.

"It would be hard for me to leave, so it wasn't a hard decision to make and I am delighted to get the deal done.

"It's been a frustrating season for me, not playing as many games as I would have liked to, but that is a credit to the lads who have played.

"I need to keep working hard and hopefully my chance will come again."
